in the red, but that doesn't not tell the whole story because we have triple digits here until ben bernanke spoke. he put a damper on the market, didn't say he'd quit the qe3 #. that's going ahead full bore, but the fact he was not speaking optimistically about the economy and the effects of qe3 on the economy sent a damper on the stocks. a nice way to begin the day with 75 up on the dow, 3.6 on the s&p, and, again, nasdaq is the only one in the red. lauren: sometimes the fed tie doesn't list everything. silver ending at seven month highs. look at that. david: oil, a little of a rise, natural gas, though, we want to focus on natural gas because we have seen that thing grow for the past month or so. it was up 5% today. if you're looking for some play in energy, oil seems a little too hectic for you, go to natural gas. with ce get -- can we get that up there? okay. switch to airlines. lauren: they are seeing a pop today. as you see, there was a report out earlier saying the outlook for the airline industry is improving. that's a good sign. look at that. up arrows across the board. david: ibm,

it comes up federal reserve of washington, d.c. my theory is ben bernanke knows where jimmy hoffa is. come clean, mr. bernanke. let's setting this once and for all. >> the feds on line 2 for bob. >> it impressed me people didn't know who jimmy hoffa was. there's going to be a time i'm going to have to explain to people who o.j. simpson was. >> time goes by. >> unbelievable. very depressing. >> we can find o.j. we haven't been able to find the real killers yet though apparently. >> i'll leave it at that. >>> in one of the best tweet smackdowns ever, oreo recently asked followers if they had ever brought cookies into a movie theater. yes, i have. which prompted this response from amc theaters.

that effectively globally central banks have gone all in with quantitative easing. imagine you're ben bernanke or mervyn king and you've just announced unlimited qe and risk assets start selling off. i would suspect they'll increase the amount of qe they're doing. so to some extent risk premium should come down. >>. >> it's hard to prove a negative. based on our reporting, we are not able to confirm, not getting any indications that temasek is looking to sell its stake or that there would be any buyers even if they were. so we wouldn't have run that story. >> more bradley then what is the sense to his point about uk banks potentially having more up side, maybe the cost of capital comes down then, are investors missing a beat, are they too pessimistic? the risk factors here just stack up and stack up and stack up. >> my track record at predicting stock movement is just awful, but i would say one of the interesting things is just regulatory uncertainty. and we saw with standard chartered a month or two ago, barclays, hsbc, rbs seems like it's coming up soon. >> thanks for that. that's it for tod
and that usually is a combination that the head of the federal reserve and ben bernanke and the new york fed and the treasury secretary so this is my statistically insignificant survey of wall street executives and who is in running for this job. jack lew is inside the white house and white house chief of staff pretty high marks. they think he is the most likely guy to be treasury secretary according to the people i talk to. major wall street ceos and the executive suite players i deal with. to comes after where it gets interesting the names that are bounced around erskine bowles from north carolina considered a moderate to conservative democrat bonn the president's deficit reduction committee with alan simpson and pretty good and we should point out he is there too but the president ignored a lot of his -- [talking over each other] >> he is seen as a guy who can bring democrats and republicans like him. the other guy out there whose name is bounced around and bounced around for four years is the ceo of black rock. i consider him a friend. the upside to larry is clearly there is no smarter g
understood, but that money that ben bernanke has been printing has been used to buy that debt and that's pushed treasury prices way up, bubble level. it is a bubble. what happens when it bursts? it will eventually. pretty soon people who lend it will say you can't pay it back and then you have killed the dollar. and the interest rates goes straight up and the economy goes straight down and ben will be unable to print out of trouble because it was printing that got us into the mess in the first place, i do not have a solution, only the conviction that we're indeed in another bubble and i don't know exactly how it will shake out. i don't know which investment will do well eventually, but i do know that this bubble will burst and when that happens, there will be a river of tears. so anyway, i've been to a lot of places. you know, i've helped a lot of people save a lot of money. but today...( sfx: loud noise of large metal object hitting the ground) things have been a little strange. (sfx: sound of piano smashing) roadrunner: meep meep. meep meep? (sfx: loud thud sound) what a strange plac
the times you've been there in the past. we have talked about ben bernanke an awful lot since qe-3, and larry, you think there's a bigger message there. >> i do. and we were somewhat critical of the decision. but i don't think anyone should be critical of ben bernanke's performance. i can't think of anybody who has physically done more for the country. i mean, those were 18, 20, 21-hour days. the guy has made a tremendous sacrifice on his family, on himself personally, and i do think it's important that for the country to grow up about this, it's fine to disagree about the policy, but he takes personal attacks from both the right and left, and i think they're totally unjustified. and i think we should actually, you know, pay him a tribute. i think he's making a great sacrifice and we need to salute him and people like him. >> you know, i think i'd agree with that. >> i totally agree with that. i give president bush credit for appointing chairman bernanke, and i give president obama tremendous credit for reappointing him. again, just like larry said, people can agree or disagree, yo

there and ben bernanke held a news conference saying they're going to go through another round of quantitative easing, printing money. the message to donors was this -- the "barack obama is at it again, spending your tax dollars per "two things about that -- the fed is reducing the deficit and making huge profits returning record amounts of money to the treasury as a result of all their previous quantitative easing. so the opposite of spending your tax dollars is true. and of course the fed is legally independent and run by guy appointed by george w. bush. so this was so completely over the top that we decided we have to do a piece on that particular e-mail. pretty much these messages to true believers exceed what we have already defunct. >> we are out of time. thank you for your attention. we appreciate your questions.
